Square Enix Trademarks Fantasy Village, Final Fantasy Life Sim In The Future?

By Spencer . March 21, 2013 . 12:03am

imageLife simulation games are quite popular in Japan with Animal Crossing: New Leaf and Fantasy Life selling out in Japan. Maybe Square Enix is going to jump on the genre with Fantasy Village?


They registered a trademark for Fantasy Village in Japan for use with video games. Hmm… I wonder what a Final Fantasy farming game would look like… I guess players can plant Gysahl Greens?

    I would like a more medieval setting than futuristic or steampunk if it is that kind of game.

  • Curan_Altea

    If it is a Final Fantasy type game as a life sim I would hope it’s closer to Rune Factory then Harvest moon. Seems the most likely route anyway.

  • Coeurl

    I bet it will use the models from the SE Members page. Something about the name Fantasy Village makes me think its less Animal Crossing and more Farmville.

  • Paradox me

    Between on Final Fantasy XI’s crafts, hobbies, chocobo raising, etc. and Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a King, I can see some sort of sim working out pretty well.

  • d19xx

    Raise chocobos to get more belts and bigger zippers!

  • DanteJones

    Rune Factory/Harvest Moon in a Final Fantasy setting? YES, PLEASE.

    • MyBodyIsReady

      Yes. I would buy that :)

      • JoJo_649

        I’d love to be a Chocobo farmer and marry a Cetra woman xD.

  • It’ll probably just be another lame cell phone game.

    • Randy Marsh

      If it happens to be another social/mobile game, you all have permission to tie me up on a tree and hit me with a pinata stick.

      • Ready the ropes!

        • Raze

          I have the pinata stick..
          Or just iron bar for more fun…
          or whip *evil smile*

  • brian

    This name reeks of that mobile/social/browser/bookface aura I’ve come to know thanks mainly to Squeenix.
    You’re tearing me apart.

    • yo1234

      It’s not like you really want this game to begin with. So why do you care if it’s a mobile game or not. acting as if they turned the numbered series into a mobile game.

  • Lester Paredes

    A Harvest Moon styled Final Fantasy game? That holds such promise! Show us Squeenix! If it’s good, I’ll give you all the money!

  • Syn

    I say social game, with the trend SE has been setting of late, but hey, I will be pleasantly surprised if its not a browser or mobile game, tho am not getting my Hype on just yet

  • PABLO Rapetti Perez

    There would be nothing like raising some lovable Chocobos in my University breaks :)

  • I just hope it’s an actual game so that I can listen to more remixed Final Fantasy tracks, yep. That’s the only reason I buy the side games.

  • gamerdude

    This could be 100% awesome if it’s for consoles or just utter micro transaction garbage.

    Given their latest statements about focusing less on social bs I have some hope for this. Rune Factory is nice but at points it lacks that triple A polish in game mechanics and animations that SE could pull off.

  • Didn’t SE say they wouldn’t be doing any more social games?

  • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

    I’m surprised it took them this long to jump in. =/

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    >:{ hype at 3% I got that gut feel’s it will be a ios game

  • Tincho Kudos

    I wonder if it is a browser game or a cellphone game hmm…

  • Carefuuul!
    Maybe a misunderstanding a la All the Bull—-Bravest may happen?

  • NTaiyokun

    iOS. Calling it now.

  • MrRobbyM

    Raising Chocobo! Dressing up as your favorite FF character! Cameos! Visiting mini versions of FF worlds!

    ..iOS! Kill me now!

  • Draeko Silver

    Remember when people got all excited about the “all the bravest” trade mark? look how that turned out…

  • Lazulis

    Oh Squeenix. I remember when news about you didn’t mean new mobile games. I sure hope it’s something like Rune Factory in an FF setting.

  • JustThisOne

    Nah, I doubt this has anything to do with Final Fantasy at all.

    Fantasy’s a common word.

  • キョン

    I could play it as long as you can raise cute chocobos with nice graphics.

  • Here we go again…

  • Final Fantasy + Harvest Moon? Sounds awesome! But I would rather have it closer to Rune Factory since it has RPG-stylish as well.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    This actually will be nice lol. Imagine breeding Gold Chocobo with our own characters with Kefka costume lol.^_^

  • Warboss Aohd

    but can i play a non-humie in it?
